The Long Dark Ride of Ace Jackalope

Although we covered it during the recent Kansas State Fair, no list of spooky stuff would be complete without mention of the historic Ye Old Mill. The 1915 attraction is called a "water dark ride" in the amusement industry and there aren't many vintage ones left. Read of its history and see its inner workings explained in 2005's Ye Old Mill.

See more in 2006's Bride of Ye Old Mill

And see yet more in 2007's Twilight Zones of the State Fair, where you can also meet the creepiest automation I know to exist.

And if Autumn has left you yearning for the Mr. Dark and the October People from Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, please enjoy Comes the Storm.
